Anthology - Pandora

Anthology cover

In March we asked for entries to a charity anthology where the theme was STOLEN. Kneel Downe's Stolen Indie Anthology is published on 20th May but we wanted to share some of the entries here on the website too, whether or not they made it into the new book. Here's Pandora by AJ Huffman...

She was to be his punishment. A fire
given for a fire stolen from a mountain
too sacred to truly breed fear.

But once inside, Heaven's beauty
found Hell in a jar the size of her fist,
and with a smile that would melt the world
she turned to face the wind, letting
the glass turn to fit her fingers,
this plague designed to maintain found reason
to release - with a kiss - every other plague

designed to destroy man.
